Between the lack of visibility into yearbook pricing and all the hidden fees, and attempting to look into your crystal ball to determine how many yearbooks you will sell, choosing the best yearbook company can be a nightmare. When comparing different yearbook companies it helps if you consider three things: flexibility, experience, and accountability. Does the yearbook company offer the flexibility you need with regard to contracts and deadlines? Do they have the experience to know how difficult it is to make sure each student is included in the yearbook? Will the yearbook company hold themselves accountable to your school, your students, and the environment.
